HOUSTON, Nov. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Flotek Industries, Inc. ("Flotek" or the "Company") (NYSE: FTK) today announced results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2020.

Flotek Industries, Inc. (PRNewsfoto/Flotek Industries, Inc.)

"It has been a challenging period as we continue to navigate through this global market disruption as a result of the health crisis and demand destruction due to the oversupply of crude oil. While our third quarter performance showed some positive signals, we continued to face some headwinds in the business, and our results did not meet our expectations," said John W. Gibson, Jr., Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer. "Flotek is making the investments in the business today to create a strong foundation for 2021 and beyond. We executed a number of important initiatives in the quarter that, while difficult, are critical to the long-term success of the business. To support our long-term vision, we have diversified our business while building three strong business lines centered around creating value from chemistry. Through the acquisition of JP3, we have access to the 'full stream' across the hydrocarbon value chain, which positions the Company to benefit from the digital transformation of chemistry. Moreover, we have introduced a janitorial and sanitizing solutions product line that leverages our existing infrastructure and core competencies. Additionally, we see significant international growth opportunities across our business segments, which is an integral part of our long-term strategy to drive greater returns."

Third Quarter Financial Results

Effective April 1, 2020, Flotek's Energy Chemistry Technologies segment has been renamed the Chemistry Technologies segment and also includes the Company's recently launched sanitizer and disinfectant operations. Flotek's second segment, Data Analytics, was created in conjunction with the acquisition of JP3 Measurement, LLC ("JP3") on May 18, 2020. Third quarter results for the Data Analytics segment include the first full quarter of JP3 results.

  • Consolidated Revenues:  Flotek generated third quarter 2020 consolidated revenue of $12.7 million for the third quarter, up 43.5% from $8.9 million in the second quarter, and below the $21.9 million in the third quarter 2019. The sequential improvement was primarily driven by an uptick in energy chemistry activity as demand increased in domestic and international markets.  The year-over-year decline in revenue reflects continued volatility in the macro-environment for U.S. onshore drilling and completion activity, further impacted by global economic events, as well as concerns related to COVID-19 pressuring productivity and customer demand across the oil and gas market.
  • Loss from Continuing Operations:  The Company reported a loss from continuing operations for the third quarter 2020 of $45.2 million, or a loss of $0.66 per diluted share, compared to a loss from continuing operations in the third quarter 2019 of $11.2 million, or a loss of $0.19 per diluted share.  The loss from continuing operations includes unusual, one-time charges related to inventory, finite-lived intangible assets, goodwill, and an earnout payment related to the acquisition of JP3, totaling $0.55 per diluted share, discussed below.
    • Impairment Charges: As a result of the extended impact of COVID-19 and the subsequent decline in oil and gas demand in the third quarter, Flotek recorded a goodwill impairment charge of $11.7 million and finite-lived intangible assets impairment charge of $12.5 million in the Data Analytics segment. 
    • Inventory Write-downs: As a result of the Company's product rationalization efforts where it evaluated historical inventory and reduced its product portfolio, Flotek recorded provisions for excess and obsolete inventory (E&O) of $9.6 million during the third quarter, including $5.7 million for Chemistry Technologies and $3.9 million for Data Analytics.
    • Earn-out Provisions: As a part of the Company's purchase agreement with JP3 and the related earn-out terms related to Flotek share price performance, the Company recorded an expense of $3.2 million
  • Consolidated Operating Expenses:  Consolidated operating expenses (excluding depreciation and amortization) were $29.5 million in the third quarter 2020, which included unusual, one-time expenses related to inventory of $9.7 million and the JP3 acquisition of $3.2 million, which contributed to an 24.7% increase from $23.6 million in the same period last year.
  • Corporate, General, & Administrative Expenses:  Corporate general and administrative expenses for the third quarter of 2020 were $2.7 million compared to $5.7 million for the third quarter of 2019.
  • Adjusted EBITDA:  Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter 2020 was a loss of $6.5 million, which narrowed from the loss of $8.0 million during the third quarter of 2019, driven by headcount and expense reductions in freight, equipment rentals, and travel & entertainment. 

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

As of September 30, 2020, the Company had cash and equivalents of $49.1 million. As previously disclosed on April 16, 2020, the Company received a $4.8 million loan and JP3 received a $0.9 million loan, both pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program administered by the U.S. Small Business Administration as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, known as the "CARES" Act.

In response to the pandemic and the volatile oil and gas market environment, earlier this year, the Company has taken numerous actions to increase its financial flexibility and preserve liquidity, including reducing headcount, decreasing cash compensation for executive officers and the Board of Directors, and cutting back discretionary spending. In the third quarter, the Company continued its cost reduction efforts, including negotiation of key supplier, logistics and lease contracts, as well as reductions in operating expenses in its Data Analytics segment.

Chemistry Technologies Segment

In the third quarter, the Chemistry Technologies segment improved sequentially with a 52% increase in revenue driven by an uptick in energy chemistry activity as demand picked up in domestic and international markets. Furthermore, the Company rationalized its inventory, streamlining its product portfolio by 35% and consequently, Flotek recorded a write-down related to E&O inventory, as previously discussed.

Within its sanitizer and disinfectant operations, Flotek continues to actively sell FDA and EPA-registered products across multiple end-markets, including selling on Amazon. During the third quarter, the Company expanded its offering to include disinfectant and surface cleaners in its existing sanitizer line to establish a full-product offering for the janitorial and sanitizing (JanSan) community, particularly those in commercial and industrial applications.

Following a strong second quarter of growth, Flotek experienced pricing pressure in its sanitizer business in the third quarter, as suppliers with lower quality products offered steep discounts to liquidate inventory ahead of the anticipated tightening of regulatory standards. Flotek expects this disruption to be temporary with excess, low-quality inventory beginning to dissipate from the market. 

Data Analytics Segment

As previously announced, in May, Flotek acquired 100% ownership of JP3, an equipment and data company that automates real-time data and analytics to the energy industry to maximize the value of their hydrocarbons. Third quarter results for the Data Analytics segment include the first full quarter of JP3 results.

During the quarter, results for Data Analytics were impacted by reductions in capital budgets by midstream and downstream customers, following the extended impact of COVID-19. As a result of these conditions and the planned transitions to a recurring revenue business model, the Company conducted an impairment analysis which resulted in goodwill and finite-lived intangible assets impairment charges for JP3 in the third quarter, as previously referenced.

During the quarter, the Company focused on reducing operating expenses, implementing a headcount reduction of 35% within the segment, as well as decreasing other operational costs not directly tied to near-term revenue generation.

As a part of the Company's inventory rationalization study, Flotek identified write-downs related to E&O inventory for the segment, as previously referenced. Additionally, during the quarter, the Company completed its inventory review for JP3 following the acquisition and identified $2.3 million in measurement period adjustments.

Looking forward, the Company is actively focusing on key growth opportunities to transform the business, including:

  • International market entry, with a focus on the Middle East, Africa and Asia, bolstered by a newly hired Middle East-based business development leader.
  • Transition from a traditional equipment-based sales model to a recurring, subscription-based model.
  • Leveraging the collaborative agreement with Phillips 66 to deploy JP3 technology to reduce transmix and deliver cost savings, expand market adoption among refine fuel producers, transporters and distribution terminal operations.

Board of Directors and Executive Management Updates

  • Flotek recently announced the appointment of Michael Fucci to its Board of Directors. Mr. Fucci was the Former Chairman of Deloitte U.S. LLP and is a thought leader on human capital, diversity & inclusion and business transformation.  He brings a strong track record of financial and operational expertise to the board. Mr. Fucci's announcement expands Flotek's board to a total of eight directors.
  • TengBeng Koid, President of Global Business, has expanded his role with the Company to lead the Data Analytics segment.

(1) Management believes that adjusted EBITDA for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and September 30, 2019, and the three months ended June 31, 2020, is useful to investors to assess and understand operating performance, especially when comparing those results with previous and subsequent periods. Management views the expenses noted above to be outside of the Company's normal operating results. Management analyzes operating results without the impact of the above items as an indicator of performance, to identify underlying trends in the business and cash flow from continuing operations, and to establish operational goals.
(2) Results of the Company's Consumer and Industrial Chemistry Technologies ("CICT") segment are presented as discontinued operations for all periods.
(3) Prior periods presented for 2019 have been adjusted to reflect revisions to results determined not to be material to those prior periods.
